Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas

When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. Writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in Knives Out, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect.

2019 | Dir Rian Johnson | 130min |  USA

“Built upon a wittily verbose script that delivers more laugh-out-loud lines than most of the year’s alleged comedies, ‘Knives Out’ retains a beating human heart into which daggers are regularly plunged” ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Gifted (2017 USA) 101 mins, Cert. 12A

Screenings at 2.30 & 7.30

Director: Marc Webb
Stars: Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, Lindsay Duncan 

At first glance the courtroom battle between a mother and her son for custody of his niece – his late sister’s daughter – who appears to be a child prodigy, seems a heavy subject.  However, Gifted is actually a well-handled, sometimes humorous and often uplifting pleasure – “the most surprising thing about “Gifted” is that it’s any good at all” (Roger Ebert).

 

Seven-year-old Mary (Mckenna Grace) is happy being home-educated by Uncle Frank (Chris Evans) but gets packed off to school against her will.  And there she is found to be a mathematical genius.

 

 

Grandmother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) wants to remove the talented child from the care of happy-go-lucky Frank and there the problems begin.

Grace “delivers an exceptional performance” in this “funny and moving comedy-drama” (Hollywood Reporter) – while Mary’s pet, a one-eyed ginger cat named Fred, plays an unexpected and very crucial role!
